That's not good. That's the next 12 months with the "Smug One" having a free ride.

I was checking out today's XKCD comic and I thought of this thread. Perhaps the levity will be appreciated?

I think I agree. Has the general public over reacted with their voting? I'll discuss in the other thread.

Tories now at 327 seats, so a majority without needing any number fiddling concerning the Irish parties who don't bother to turn up.

Indeed, a majority. A majority of the electorate didn't vote for them!

That statement holds true for all parties though.
63.2% didn't vote for the Conservatives,
69.5% didn't vote for Labour,
87.3% didn't vote for UKIP,
etc.

General Election 2015: Highest turnout since 1997.
Turnout has been calculated at 66%:)
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/generalelection/general-election-2015-highest-turnout-since-1997-10235076.html

Turn out has been particularly high in Scotland this year, with figures suggesting that 71.1% of the population headed to the polls - leading to significant gains for the SNP.

That photo is a gift to headline writers.

Big Muppet (and Elmo).

Like that photo of Boris Johnson stood by that statue of a chicken in Trafalgar Square...
